I discovered Instagram fairly late compared to most people, and if I am honest, the reason I didn’t join up is because I didn’t get what all the fuss was about. Six months down the line and it is one of my favourite social media platforms – what’s not to love? I drool over pictures of…

My last year of living in Toronto before heading abroad was in a house near Kensington Market and Chinatown. Kensington is one of my favourite areas in all of Toronto; anyone who knows the city will be familiar with it’s eclectic craziness and perhaps pedestrian Sundays, when the streets are closed off and the market…

Do you ever have leftover red wine?  Haha, me neither.  “Leftover” wine, what is that?  But pretend we’re living in an alternate universe where your friends come over for dinner and, at the end of the evening, instead of being sipped dry, you find half a cup of red wine in the bottom of a…

Gluten free? That’s no problem at all!! A lot of people think coeliacs have it hard when it comes to baking! Wheat is in all cakes right? Well not with these cookies! They are so light, with a macaroon texture on the outside, they are irresistible! All you have to do is simply use cornflour…

In my extensive research of the American Hoagie Roll, I have found that there is no such thing as the definitive Hoagie Roll. In fact, a Hoagie is not a Hoagie if you live in, say, New York. If you live in New York, it’s a Hero, and in New England it’s known as a…

Chewy, crisp and spiked with cinnamon, these cookies are one of my favourite treats! For some, an oatmeal cookie is great with some juicy raisins, but I like to add slivered almonds and walnuts in the mix as well! These cookies are great as a snack with a glass of cold milk. Ingredients: 1 1/2…

I’m a self taught sourdough bread baker.  I discovered the world  of sourdough bread a little over a year ago and have been deeply fascinated with it ever since.  The whole process is like magic to me. How can you take flour, water and salt and transform them into something so delicious and sustainable?  It…

Okay, so this is not so much a recipe…..more of an example of one of my fav pizzas that we enjoyed for dinner tonight. I made a pile of caramelised onions last week so we could enjoy them with this ‘n’ that and they taste SO good on top of pizzas. This very delicious pizza…

For those of you who bake regularly, how often does it all go horribly wrong? In my case: plenty! And let’s face it, there is nothing more soul destroying than putting that cake in the oven with all the hopes in the world, only for it to catastrophically fail. Like a white chocolate bundt cake…

Each Monday rolls around and sometimes I have a great recipe lined up for #meatlessmonday, sometimes I don’t. This was one of those “I don’t” Mondays. What I did have was a nice round head of Aussie cauliflower sitting in my fridge that if I didn’t use soon, would be going to the bad place…
